Hello, am new to the forum and I must say what a wicked one it is. Have been searching for a good 7 for a while, decided on a C7, fancied trying actives have a Ibanez 6 (RG Prestige) with passives which I like but thought I'd give EMGs a go. My question is about string gauge, I am planning to tune drop D with a low A and I prefer quite tight strings anyway, I have 10-46 on my standard tuned Ibbi and 11-52 on my drop c tuned Ibbi, so thats the sort of tension and feel I like. I am guessing 10-52 (d'addario exl140) with a 60 or thicker for the low A. What do you guys reckon? Cheers, Fionn.
